"Skippy" is one of the most interesting and iconic guns you can find in Cyberpunk 2077. It is a smart handgun that not only annihilates your enemies but also talks. Yup, that's right, "Skippy" is an AI-driven smart handgun that speaks to its owner.
It is marked on the map as one of the 'biz' icons, represented by a yellow exclamation mark.
Skippy is found in an alley located in Vista Del Ray in the Heywood district. The weapon will be resting beside a corpse who, according to Skippy, is a thief who stole him from someone else.
This is a special smart gun that has two modes - Stone Cold Killer and Puppy-Loving Pacifist. Stone Cold Killer turns your gun into a headshot machine. Whenever you shoot enemies, you will get a guaranteed headshot. If you choose to go with the Puppy-Loving Pacifist, then Skippy will automatically aim more towards the limbs.
If you choose the Stone Cold Killer mode, then don't get too excited as it only lasts up to 50 kills. After that, the gun automatically switches back to Puppy-Loving Pacifist mode, and it makes sense since the gun becomes extremely powerful in the former mode.
After one or two days of having Skippy, Skippy will automatically come up and start talking to you about how he remembered his original owner's name while running a diagnostic check on the gun. The gun owner turns out to be Regina Jones, the NCPD fixer who has been throwing gigs and jobs at you over the phone.
Skippy will ask you to return the weapon to the owner. You will have the choice to either return the weapon or keep it for yourself. Either way, whatever answer you choose, a new side job called 'Machine Gun' will start. Your answer to Skippy only gives either a good or a bad reaction from Skippy.
To complete this side job, you must return Skippy to Regina, or it won't be completed. Unfortunately, you will have to return the weapon regardless of your answer to Skippy about returning the weapon. For completion of the job, it is necessary to return it, or else the job will remain in your journal forever.
Regina rewards you with €$7,420 for returning Skippy. It is also worth noting that the gun scales with player level. This means that the weapon's damage will increase as you level up, making it one of the best weapons to use for the entirety of the game.
